New Blackberry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones with BB7 OS
For the BlackBerry smartphone users out there, you may be pleased to know that Research in Motion has announced at the BlackBerry World Conference in Orlando, Florida that their Blackberry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones will come with an updated Blackberry 7 operating system.
However, for those that were hoping to see Android Apps and Flash Support with the BlackBerry 7 OS, unfortunately it comes with neither, as mentioned in my article yesterday. Nevertheless, despite the absence of the Android Apps and Flash Support the Blackberry 7 OS provides an easier and faster user experience through improved web browsing, voice activated searches and the ability to manage personal and business content separately.
In addition, Chris Martin of The Inquirer has mentioned that Docs To Go will be pre-loaded onto the handsets, with all premium features enabled, to handle Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel files. These two smartphones come with the all too familiar Qwerty keyboard and trackpad that we are use to seeing on BlackBerry’s phones and have a 2.8in Liquid Graphics capacitive touchscreen that has 640×480 resolution.
The devices each run a 1.2GHz processor and are just 10.5mm thick, making them RIM‘s fastest and most thinnest smartphones to date. They have 768MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a 5MP camera that can record HD 720p video, near field communications technology and a 1230mAh battery. Each handset weighs in at 130g and is made with brushed stainless steel frames, and has a high gloss fibreglass backplate.
The difference with the two handsets is the 9930 offers dual-band HSPA+ and dual-band CDMA, whilst the 9900 offers tri-band HSPA+. However, both come with quad-band GSM/EDGE. Will you be getting your hands on one of these BlackBerry smartphones when they release worldwide at the beginning of Summer? Please let us know.
